Jesus Said – Trouble? Rejoice! — This #livebetter soundbite is part of Jesus teachings called the sermon on the mount. Reading from:
Matthew 5:11-12 (NLT) 11 “God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers. 12 Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way.
How can you be blessed when people are against you? Jesus said, when that happens, be happy!
What happens here is temporary! Following Jesus, we can be glad about eternal things!
What can you be happy about that seems bad now?
Jesus said, Trouble? Rejoice! How can you put that into action, #today!
